. two-thirds of debate watchers polled by cnn and orc believe that mitt romney bested the president. that is the biggest win of any presidential debater since we first started asking the questions of that back in 1984. check out this number. 82% said that mitt romney did better than they expected, but only 1 in 10 said he did worse. as for the president's performance, 6 in 10 say that he did worse than expected. just 2 in 10 said he actually did better. cnn's dana bash joins me now with more about the stats and the sound bites and to borrow a line from our friend and our colleague james carville, the president wanted a conversation, but mitt romney showed up with a chain saw. how are things going within the various xamps today and how is everybody breaking this down? the narrative today. >> the narrative today is simply that, you know, going into yesterday, there were republicans talking about maybe it's time to put resources towards getting the senate back in congress and, you know, some people leaving romney for political dead. that is not the narrative today. does the fact that m

this is off track, wants to get back on track. mitt romney/paul ryan offer a solution, contrasting vision for america that will get this economy moving again, get jobs back on track. i think he did so well in the first debate, did so well in the second debate and why mitt romney and paul ryan will be the next president, vice president of the united states. >> he lost last night. >> no, no. >> he did. >> guys, gentlemen, stop. next show. thank you for being with us, congressman. we appreciate it. let's get right to cnn "newsroom" with carol costello. don't laugh at them, carol. >> no, i really do. thank you, soledad. >>> round two in the bag, in your face and personal. >> i don't think anyone really bloevs that you're a person who will be pushing for oil and gas and coal. you'll get your chance in a moment. i don't believe that people believe that's the case because -- that wasn't a question. it was a statement. >> did it sway independent voters? newsroom starts now. >>> good morning to you. i'm carol costello. this latest debate was a slug fest. for 90 minutes, town hall meeting between p
, town hall meeting between president barack obama and governor romney was intense. each capped date using his time and, in many cases, going way over to stay on the attack. in our cnn/orc poll taken right after the debate, president obama came out on top. 46% of debate watchers say the president won while 39% claimed romney was the winner. that's within the margin of error. we have complete debate analysis, but we begin with our senior congress iional correspondent dana bash with more on the fireworks from hofstra. >> you may think a debate in front of undeclared, persuadable voters would produce polite performances. >> production is up. >> is down. >> no, it isn't. >> reporter: think again. at times this town hall looked like a schoolyard brawl. >> not true governor romney. >> how much did you cut them back? >> not true. >> i had a question and the question was how much did you cut them by? >> you want me to answer. >> how much did you cut them by. >> reporter: if memorable debates was about moments one here was on libya. >> who was it that denied enhanced security and why? >> repo
, mr. president. governor romney -- >> government does not create jobs. government does not create jobs. >> i want to introduce you to barry green. he'll have the last question to you first. >> barry? hi, barry. >> hi, governor. i think this is a tough question. each of you, what do you believe is the biggest misperception that the american people have about you as a man and a candidate using specific examples, can you take this opportunity to debunk that misperception and set us straight? >> thank you. and that's an opportunity for me and i appreciate it. in the nature of a campaign, it seems that some campaigns are focused on attacking a person rather than prescribing their own future and the things they'd like to do and the course of that i think the president's campaign has tried to characterize me as someone who is very different than who i am. i care about 100% of the american people. i want 100% of the american people to have a bright and prosperous future. i care about our kids. i understand what it takes to make a bright and prosperous future for america again. i spent my life
our country forward. i believe governor romney is a good man. he loves his family, cares about his faith. but i also believe that when he said behind closed doors that 47% of the country considered themselves victims who refuse personal responsibility, think about who he was talking about. folks on social security who have worked all their lives, veterans who sacrificed for this country, students who are out there trying to hopefully advance their own dreams but also this country's dreams, soldiers who are overseas fighting for us right now. people who are working hard every day paying payroll tax, gas taxes, but don't make enough income. and i want to fight for them. that's what i've been doing for the last four years because if they succeed, i believe the country succeeds. when my grandfather fought in world war ii and he came back and he got a g.i. bill that allowed him to go to college, that wasn't a handout. that was something that advanced the entire country and i want to make sure that the next generation has those same opportunities. that's why i'm asking for your vote and
. president. >> thank you very much, bob, governor romney and to lynn university. you've now heard three debates, months of campaigning and way too many tv commercials. and now you've got a choice. you know, over the last four years we've made real progress digging our way out of policies that gave us two prolonged wars, record deficits and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. and governor romney wants to take us back to those policies. foreign policy that's wrong and reckless, economic policies that won't create jobs, won't reduce our deficit, but will make sure that folks at the very top don't have to play by the same rules you do and i've got a different vision for america. i want to build on our strengths. and i put forward a plan to make sure we're bringing manufacturing jobs back to our shores, by rewarding companies and small businesses that are investing here, not overseas. i want to make sure we got the best education system in the world and we're retaining our workers for the jobs of tomorrow. i want to control our own energy by developing oil and natural gas b

to decide. does president obama get four more years or does mitt romney get a shot at the oval office? they each made the case last night during the final presidential debate and yesterday we really wondered if anybody was going to watch. after all, this big debate, third and final, was competing for eyeballs against two huge sporting events. we do have a best measure this early on. it is a strange one. a unique one. twitter, debate one brought us 10.3 million tweets. debate number 2, the number fell to 7.2. last night it fell further to 6.5 million tweets which is still a lot of people. right after it was over we had a chance to do more normal polling and we asked debate watchers who won and here are the numbers. 48% gave the victory to president obama. 40% said governor romney got the best of it. as dana bash reports, regardless of the outcome, both men had a specific game plan to further their case. >> mitt romney came wanting voters to see him as commander in chief. the commander in chief came determined to make sure that didn't happen. >> i know you haven't been in a position to

that these candidates represent. lots to talk about. let's get right to. all right. mitt romney coming out swinging. many viewers from the left and from the right say president obama took a shellacking. dana bash has the highlights. >> reporter: right out of the gate it was clear, mitt romney came to play. >> the president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago. that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle down government would work. >> president obama sounded a familiar alarm. warning of romney's been there done that economics. >> the approach that governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003. we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. >> whether it was health care, jobs, or medicare, it was romney who stood out for his aggressive ste. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table, and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care
on point. no distractions, no blunders. so you can imagine what it was like for mitt romney to wake up today and hear about this. republican tea party-backed candidate richard mourdock running for the u.s. senate in a close race in indiana told a at any time audience that children conceived in rape are still god's gift, and part of god's will. >> i believe that life begins at conception. the only exception i have for -- to have an abortion is in that case of the life of the mother. i just -- i struggled with it myself for a long time, but i cape to realize, life is that gift from god. and i think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> god intended to happen. listen, rape, abortion, they are explosive flashpoint issues for the republicans. and this is one of the most costly and closely watched senate races in the country right now. remember that republicans want to gain control of the senate where democrats hold a slim majority. the tea party-backed mourdock was asked about his position on abortion. and when it cam
barack obama and mitt romney plan to tackle these key american challenges, but before we get to those, here's a look at top stories making news today. >>> we start with a deadly shooting on an alabama college campus. a campus police officer shot and killed an 18-year-old freshman at the university of south alabama overnight. school officials say gilbert call lar was naked and acting ear rattically. he confronted the officer and rushed him stooimpls and ignored warnings. they say the officer shot the young man in the chest once. his friends say they're shocked at what happened. >> you could ask anyone that knew him. he was a great, loving guy. always made people smile. is not the kind of guy that people knew him and said he would do something like this. >> cnn legal contributor paul cowl lan says alabama law may come into play in this case down the road. >> alabama also has virtually the identical stand your ground law that florida has. so do you know that the officer in this case can probably say he was -- he felt that he was in danger of his life, and he was standing his ground and s
their campaign travel plans. mitt romney has canceled rallies tomorrow in virginia. he'll be in ohio instead. and vice president biden was supposed to be in virginia beach today but had to call it off. president obama campaigns in florida tomorrow. ncht >>> ohio will be the focus over the next ten days and the latest cnn/orc poll shows why. obama is leading 50% to 46% basically unchanged since earlier this month and well within the poll's sampling error. we're going to spend a lot of time this hour hearing from the first lady, michelle obama, and mitt romney's wife, ann romney. two fascinating women and strong advocates for their successful and ambitious husbands. at the bottom of the hour we'll bring you a special of "the journey of ann romney." she tells our own gloria borger that some people have the wrong impression of her husband. >> there are a lot of charges about your husband. one of them is that he's somebody who has no core. that he's been on both sides of a lot of issues. >> and that's just to me like the most false charge there is. because i know his core. >> what is his core? >>
massachusetts governor mitt romney will go at it tonight head-to-head, face-to-face, and while they're on the stage, whole lot will be happening behind the scenes. want to bring in cnn political director mark preston who gives us a look. >> heetsz head inside where the action is going to take place. >> she must be wonder whoing will be sitting in the audience tonight for this first presidential debate. i don't know the answer, but peter here with the commissioner on presidential debates does. >> on wednesday night at the university of denver we'll have students, vip's, and those that the campaigns have invited. they'll be on floort and on the balcony behind us. >> how do you get invited if you don't get an invitation from one of the candidates? >> it would be very difficult to get into the debate. >> who is going to be at that far podium? >> at the far podium will be governor romney, and then at the near podium will be president obama. >> how is it going to work? who will get the first question? >> mr. layer will direct the first question to president obama. will he have two minutes

, and if you are going to save any money through what governor romney's proposing, what has to happen is that the money has to come from somewhere. and when you move to a voucher system, you are putting seniors at the mercy of those insurance companies, and over time, if traditional medicare has decayed or fallen apart, then they're stuck. and this is the reason why aarp has said that your plan would weaken medicare, substantially, and that's why they were supportive of the approach that we took. one last point i want to make. we do have to lower the cost of health care. not just in medicare -- >> in a minute. >> but overall. >> okay. >> that's a big topic. >> i want to get to it. all i want to do, very quickly, before we leave the economy -- >> let's get back to medicare. the president said that the government could provide the service at a lower cost and without a profit. if that's the case then it will always be the best product that people can purchase. >> just a minute, governor. >> my experience is the private sector is typically able to provide a better product at a lower cost.
romney just gave an economic speech in ames, iowa at a small construction business that as it turns out received nearly $2 million from obama's stimulus programs. so let's go straight to gloria borgeer who i know is watching the speech. my question number one for you is this. i didn't hear a lot new in the speech. i'm guessing you didn't hear much new in the speech either. so given that fact, isn't it a bit risky, though, to introduce new policy here with 10, 11 days to go? isn't this really about getting voters excited getting out to vote? >> it's about getting independent voters to really take a look at you as somebody who is reasonable. as you said, this is really not about new ideas. this is about a different tone, a different kind of appeal. talking about change. i mean, four years ago. remember, barack obama was the candidate of change. you can't do that when you're the incumbent but it's easy to do when you're the challenger. so you make the case for change. you admit, as mitt romney did, that barack obama was kind of dealt a bad hand, but then you say, you know what? he didn't d
